But there was still one SEO problem to note. Since search engines stop caching pages with more than two $_GET variables, it was important to make the paginator only rely on the state and the page number. All the other links to sort the results were nofollowed. Also the paginator included hard links to each results page and the next/previous links were nofollowed. The idea behind this is to reduce the number of steps from the homepage each link was.All in all it was a rousing success. Googlebot went nuts when it saw the 3,000 some odd user’s pages. It indexed half of them the day after I launched the new hard-link search engine. Sure the AJAX still isn’t SEO friendly, but this is a pretty good workaround, that is also pretty robust, since it uses the same page as the AJAX calls, there won’t be any double-revisioning.
